Guestbook comments from the owner

All too soon our holiday is coming to an end. We have had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We think Casa Bonita is such a lovely villa.You have given such thought to providing everything one might need for a great holiday. We particularly appreciated the large sun umbrella this year. It provided good shade cover on the beach. This is the third time we have stayed and have many happy memories to take home.

Thanks again for our stay. We hope to return to this delightful area.

Relaxing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a quiet getaway. The house is in a nice neighborhood close to the beach. It has a great pool, comfortable beds with spacious rooms, and a nice kitchen. Even though we couldn’t go to the beach because of the red tide for the time we were there, we didn’t miss it at all. We rode bikes everywhere , we ate at great restaurants close by, and we visited beautiful downtown Naples a few times. Our favorite part of the day was in the afternoon when we went outside by the pool to listen to the sounds of the birds to relax and swim. Thank you Cate and Pete. It was the vacation we needed.

Casa Bonita is a beautiful spacious pool home .

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Peter and Cates pool home and were completely happy with both the home and the owners. The home is nicely decorated and very comfortable....whether you are in the living room or at the pool area. The beds and bedding are comfy, the linens are nice and the kitchen is well outfitted. I have rented many homes for many years but the best thing about this rental is how accommodating the owners were. Anything you would need for a beach vacation they had at your fingertips. Beach and pool stuff galore....bikes....extra propane in case the gas grill went out....laundry soap....plenty of toiletries...literally anything you needed they had thought of. Plus either Cate or Peter checked to make sure all was well. Peter was at the house more than once for pool care and was never intrusive. It was the most complete vacation package I have ever rented. I highly recommend this home. Casa Bonita and the owners are very welcoming and helpful.

Excellent Villa, Superb location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 weeks in Casa Bonita. The location of the villa was near to many beaches including Bonita Beach, Barefoot Beach, Delnor Wiggins Beach and Lovers Key. The villa was about 25 minutes from Southwest Florida Airport along the I 75 or the Tamiami Trail (US 41).

Casa Bonita was clean & well maintained. Everything was provided at the villa from bedding, towels, well stocked kitchen, BBQ, beach towels, beach chairs, cool box, beach umbrellas. In fact everything you need for your vacation has been thoughtfully provided by Cate & Peter. We also loved the solar heated pool & relaxing on the lanai.

Cate & Peter are great hosts. They provided lots of information on local activities/ amenities. They are also on hand should you require any assistance.

There are a number of local restaurants nearby, we particularly liked the Fish House restaurant on Bonita Beach Road which also had a great happy hour from 3 to 6pm.

We also enjoyed the Trolley bus tour around Naples which you can book at a discount through Groupon.

We had a wonderful holiday in Casa Bonita & would definitely stay there again in the future. We would highly recommend this villa.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This Casa Bonita was amazing! It is conveniently located to everything...the beach, Publix grocery store, resturaunts, and shopping. The house was equipped with everything from linens and towels to everything you would need to cook in the kitchen. The pool is amazing and refreshing to swim in after a long day at the beach. My husband and I traveled with our two year old, parents, and in laws. So happy that we got to share many memories together in this beautiful home. They have everything you need for the beach including chairs, umbrellas, and coolers. Even a couple of bikes. Thank you Cate and Peter! We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Bonita Springs.

Our week stay at Casa Bonita was relaxed 😎 and was truly amazing. The house was very clean upon our arrival. Bonita Springs Beach is a short drive away and is a beautiful beach. The restaurants in the area are totally awesome. Casa Bonita neighborhood is very friendly with neighbors making us feel welcome. We highly recommend a stay at Peter and Cate's house.

Bonita Shores is a quiet residential neighborhood near the Gulf of Mexico (and its fabulous beaches) between Naples to the south and Lovers Key to the north. Sunny and mild weather year-round makes Southwest Florida a holiday paradise. Our guests enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities, many of which are focused on the beach, but other opportunities for nature study are diverse and remarkable. Try birding at Ding Darling Sanibel Island or Corkscrew Audubon Sanctuary, spot alligators at the Big Cypress, or boat through the vast and mysterious Everglades. Peter is a guide/naturalist and if you like he can give you tips on where to go to see wildlife and nature at its best. Recent guests have enjoyed trips in our boat to remote and seldom seen beaches for shelling, walking, swimming and picnicking. Ask Cate or Peter for more information.

Other Activities: Boating, kayaking, birding, nature study

Golf: Naples has earned a reputation of having some of the most sought after golf courses in the World. Naples, Florida, presently boasts over 100 golf courses!
